TIG welding is mostly used to weldthin sections for high surface finish. A major drawback in the processis having very small penetration as compare to other arc welding process. The problem can be avoided by using active flux in conventional TIG welding. In the present study investigate theoptimization of A-TIG welding process on mild steel for an optimal parameter by using Taguchi technique. Theeffect of various process parameters (welding current (I), welding speed (V), active flux) .IN the present study efforts were made to increase the weld penetration by appling the active flux and to optimize the process parameters.
